"Tonight, I tell you with absolute confidence, we are going to win the Democratic nomination," Sanders told cheering supporters on Tuesday in his home state of Vermont - where he comfortably won the primary.

"You cannot beat Trump with the same old, same old kind of politics," said Sanders before launching into a broadside against the record of the centrist Biden.
